Course on Gender and Women's Health for Nurse Practitioner Students
A women's health nurse practitioner (WHNP) provides comprehensive care to women from menarche through senescence. Nurse practitioner curriculum prepares competent WHNPs by integrating both practice and clinical knowledge in the context of women's values. We developed a course that focused directly on how the social, cultural, and political context of women's lives, both past and present, has influenced women's health to provide students the opportunity to fully immerse into these issues. This article reports on the development of and student responses to a course focusing on gender and women's health issues as part of the curriculum for a WHNP program.
